Have to admit I haven't played most of these.
The only game I've played on that list was DMC:dmc and that game was over-hyped imo. I wanted to play Deathsmiles, but it's only on 360, a console I refuse to buy due to the whole RROD and having to pay for online. I don't buy faulty systems. Other than those and maybe The Darkness, those games simply don't appeal to me at all. Are they bad games? Doubt it, but those are games I'd never buy. Correction, I'll PLAY (try) any game, but I won't BUY just any game.
Had to take that jab with RROD. And I'm a Sony guy, but I wouldn't even bring that knife to a gun fight.
I'm talking about when the 360 just came out, before the redesign slim version. I don't have that much money and seeing my friend's 360s die out made me not want it. I'm not going to pay $300+ for a system that has a high chance of dying. Then there's having to pay for XBL. I'm cheap, so that's a huge NOPE! The games too didn't appeal to me either, aside from from Lost Odyssey? I like Japanese games and there weren't a lot of those on the 360. Weighing the games too, the PS3 and Wii had more game's I wanted. Valkyria Chronicles, Metal Gear 4, FF 13VS and potential KH3, Mario Galaxy, and Smash bros Brawl all won me over to those systems. The PS3 also not being region locked really opened the import gates for me. I did also spend a chunk on PC too. Mainly F2P MMOs and the few steam PC games I could find for cheap.
i really liked The Darkness, awesome concept imo. same with Clide (Clive?) Barkers Jerico and Time Shift, all three were underrated imo. pure was ok, still liked atv offroad fury and motorstorm a lot more. would have Really loved to see a 4x4 Evo 3 this gen. if nintendo secures it as an exclusive again, i sware im buying a WiiU! @tuxedo again: if you dont have a PSP still, thats the best platform for JRPGs imo, Its still very relevant if youre into handheld, and cheap now. the DS too. im still yet to get a 3DS, it has a lot of cool games.
Yeah, we had a nice collector's edition of DeathSmiles at my GameStop for a while. I contemplated getting it, but.. you know, Microsoft. As something of a Witchblade fan, I wanted to play The Darkness games... just never did. DmC... sorry, but no. It deviated too far from the DMC formula for me. Bullet Witch is another 360 game I've wanted to get my hands on. Eventually, I guess. Eventually. The rest either didn't interest me, or I never heard of them.
Majin is so good!
david jaffe-"life of a pixel". haha thats my bro, keeping it old school!
Yep Battlestations was a innovative title never played anything like it one of the best games I have ever played both are great.
Played a few of these games. I really loved Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom and feel sad that it was so overlooked. The artstyle was lovely, really colourful with nice character design. I remember this was one of the very few games I rented. After about 2 hours I loved it so stopped playing and sent it back and bought my own copy as I felt I owed it to the devs to support them. Sadly they went bust anyway :( DMC in my opinion never deserved any of the hate it received. I had such a blast with that game, for me it was more enjoyable than Bayonetta as it was nowhere near as frustrating but still made you feel like an absolute badass with your combo's. Sadly I haven't played Deathsmiles but that game looks super interesting. Interesting read, really enjoyed this article.
Deathsmiles is a great game. Any bullet hell game made by Cave turns out fun as hell.
I played the demo of The Darkness years ago and it seemed fairly meh to be honest.
lol, Cliffy B thinks the writing on DmC was good??!! **** you! **** you! **** you!!!
Not surprising coming from him tho.
I also wanted to like Majin, but after playing the demo (JPN one, I guess it had Japanese voice acting) I hated the voice of the beast. On top of that, the puzzles and gameplay just seemed predictable, so I never plonked down the cash for it. Sorry, I did want to like it...
If you only have a Wii or Wii U, you can t play any of them I wish Nintendo would do something to get some 3rd party games
Everyone should play Castlevania: Lords of shadow and Alan Wake. I wish both sold millions of copies like they deserved to but sadly they didn't, both are bloody amazing games, give them a chance.
Alan Wake is the best 360 game <3
LoS was very good. I made the mistake of playing my first run on hard difficulty. It was brutal.
I own The Darkness and want DmC ^_^
